Grace is a consultant in the research and consulting team. She supports charities and funders to improve their impact. Grace has been focusing on NPCs criminal justice research, specifically how the voluntary sector can be better supported and more effective in such a challenging context. She works on NPC’s Data Labs project, helping to establishing data labs in health, education and employment and supporting the running of the Justice Data Lab.
The role of the voluntary sector in criminal justice an area of particular interest to Grace. Before joining NPC she volunteered part time as a researcher on the Prison Reform Trust’s review into the over-representation of looked after children in the criminal justice system, exploring the systematic disadvantages children in care face in the UK. She also worked for a charity helping care leavers make the often complex transition from childhood to independent living, using theatre to build their confidence.
Why I work at NPC
NPC asks big questions about the charity sector. It is brilliant working with so many people driven to support the sector in the long run.
